Now that some time has passed, wouldn't you say that the whole brouhaha regarding the IGNORE function on RealJock was similar to the millennium Y2K scare?

    I mean, when we first learned that each of us had the power to IGNORE a RealJock member on the forum it was like ARMAGEDDON around here!

    Remember this?

    http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/457680/

    Or the elation some felt with their new found power.....

    http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/471586/

    For a time there was the inevitable "would you IGNORE the guy above you" thread as well.

    People were picking sides, and some were actually afraid that the whole forum was going to ignore each other and no one would be left to talk to.

    Well....

    I think for the most part....we are all still here.
    For good or for bad....
    For better for worse...
    Till death...blah blah blah.

    I think we have chosen to listen, respond, and reason with each other as opposed to blocking, stifling, and well, ignoring each other.

    And I think it is a good thing. icon_biggrin.gif

    Thoughts?

    Have you actually ignored someone?

    The thought of doing it has never crossed my mind....

    I haven't ignored anyone. Thought about it a couple of times but I doubt I will ever actually do it.

    Is there a post above you lilTanker? icon_wink.gif

    I have ignored 7 so far. Not for the basic content of their posts, but for the vomitous personalities displayed in those posts. I haven't blocked some people I disagree with 99% of time because they actually provide a different point of view without being total ass stains.

    I love it...my doctor agrees there has been a noticeable decrease in my blood pressure and stress hormone levels since I now have the epic proportion of idiocy leveled on me by two morons removed from my field of vision

    One of whom I share with liltanker .....join me in a toast I have the Dom?

    I would have to agree...I enjoy reading different opinions and perspectives in these forums, life would seem so mundane if everyone thought alike.....though I have lost count of all the "ass stains", and "vomitous personalities", I have ignoredicon_lol.gif

    I wonder if this has ever caused any confusion in "the guy above you" threads. I haven't noticed anything, but then I might just be blocked by half the posters.

    ^ I think it's 'Obama', from other threads.

    I wouldn't ever block anyone, just in case they were a waging a flame war against me, without me being able to see it burn.

    Is a silent fantasy movie porn with the volume down? Or is it Charlie Chaplin dressed as an Elf getting plowed by the Dwarven King played by Buster Keaton?

    I think that the ignore feature is great for keeping the peace, when there's somebody who is just here to cause trouble. I have blocked one person. It seemed like all he wanted to do was argue. Perhaps I was wrong. But, I will say that there are FAR fewer obnoxious guys on RJ than I have seen on any other site. The guys here seem more reasonable and considerate.

    never blocked anyone so far, just one by mistake and i fixed it. Anyway, the whole blocking option is still useful for threatening purposes icon_twisted.gif

    i've ignored 3. i did two of them in the first moment i found out about the option and haven't regretted it in the slightest. i don't think it's becoming an overly used function for most people...

    oh...


    and y2k could still happen... icon_eek.gif
